Video Demonstrations

Photo of Pewter Colonial Midrib Spoon

In this demonstration, Jon shows how the Colonial Midrib Spoon is made by pouring molten, lead-free pewter, into an antique (circa 1750) bronze spoon mold. The pewter, an alloy of 92% tin, 1% copper and 7% antimony, is heated to a temperature of 550 F, and then ladled into the antique mold. Those spoons which are imperfect castings are consigned to the pot, in the time-honored spirit of recycling, to be re-cast another day.

Watch as Jon Gibson demonstrates how he uses the lathe to fashion a beautiful Baby Cup. Beginning with a flat pewter disc he spins and shapes the metal to a form, and then finishes with a gently-rounded lip. He completes the piece by soldering on a graceful, cast-pewter handle. Enjoy!
